PET POLICY

We allow pets with the payment of a $5,000 non-refundable pet fee, where allowable by law.  Certain size and breed restrictions may apply.  We also require tenants to provide us with proof of insurance, where allowed by law, listing us as additional loss payee in the event of a liability claim, with a minimum limit of $1,000,000.  We arrived at our pet fee based on our average cost to re-carpet our units that have carpet (or resurface those with wood floors), repaint walls, repair baseboards, casing, and other molding, patch scratch marks in drywall, treat for fleas, and other repairs needed after a pet has lived in a unit.  We have found that most prospective tenants claim to have a "well-trained, house-broken" pet, but we almost always end up having to make some combination of the above listed repairs afterwards.  Therefore, we do our best to allow tenants to have their pets, but simply charge what it is worth for us to bear the very likely risk that we will need to make such repairs.  Your security deposit alone simply is not enough to cover our cost.

 In the event that a tenant is found to have an unauthorized pet in or on our property, the penalty will range from immediate loss of full security deposit and requirement to replenish it within 7 days, or automatic eviction, at landlord's discretion.
